Sales have gone way up after little Prince George was seen sporting 1950’s classic shoes. Baby George was spotted wearing the soft leather navy shoes designed by Oadby Company Early Days.
George’s footwear has caused others to take action and snag a pair of their own, but now the company has considered expanding to help with the new orders. "I looked at the photo of Prince George and his parents on tour in New Zealand and recognized the shoes he was wearing. I still cannot believe it – we've been making shoes since 1952 and now they're being worn by a future king," said Paul Bolton, managing director of Early Days. Many styles and colors of this shoe have been reportedly sold out.

Keeping Children's Feet Healthy
Having healthy feet in childhood can help prevent medical problems later in life, namely in the back and legs. As children grow, their feet require different types of care from birth to school-age.
Although babies do not walk yet, it is still very important to take care of their feet.
· Avoid putting tight shoes or socks on his or her feet
· Allow the baby to stretch and kick his or her feet to feel comfortable
As a toddler, kids are now on the move and begin to develop differently. At this age toddlers are getting a feel for walking, so don’t be alarmed if your toddler is unsteady or ‘walks funny’.
As your child gets older, it is important to teach them how to take care of their feet
- Show them proper hygiene to prevent infections such as fungus
- Be watchful of any pain or injury
- Have all injuries checked by a doctor as soon as possible
- Comfortable, protective shoes should usually be worn
